Cross compiling from an Apple computer

  • Hi!

    I am facing the possibility of developing using an Apple computer, and I need to generate an application for iOS, Android and, maybe, Windows Mobile.

    Is it possible from the Apple box to generate the application for these non-Apple systems? Or I wiil need to have Qt installed on a Apple computer, and another Qt installed in computer running, say, Windows?

    Thanks for your time!

    For iOS and Android, no problem. However I am not aware of a development environment from OS X to WinRT

  • I would go with virtual machine(s) on the Mac, as you won't be able to compile for other than Apple platforms on an Apple computer.

    Running a Windows machine as a virtual guest is fairly simple and there you can compile all the other platforms.
